Show Notes

One of the greatest ways we can channel our passions for purpose is through volunteering. It’s good for civic society, it’s good for our local clubs, and research tells us that volunteering even increases our sense of wellbeing. 

Today I’m joined around the Warm Table by Craig Spencer – who has volunteered most of his adult life and knows better than most the importance of giving things a go and getting involved. 

As Head of Community Engagement at Bankwest some years ago, he was among those who spearheaded the movement in corporate volunteering and today he manages more than 900 volunteers through his role as Volunteer Manager for St John Ambulance in the Wheatbelt. 

He’s also a Board member of Volunteering WA and Chair of the State Government’s Volunteer Reference Group…. 

 And he’s a volunteer firefighter in his community – which makes him passionate about ensuring each of us has a fire plan for our homes and family and he’ll give us some tips on just how we can do that.

My Warm Table, translated into Italian is Tavola Calda. These were the words my Papa used to describe a table of good friends, good food and good conversation. I always aim to create a tavola calda in my life and I hope this podcast encourages you to do so too!
